Yes it is an exceptional theme in many ways. Actually, there are few themes that are as multifaceted as Divi which makes it a great theme for pretty much any purpose. While the design of Divi looks very modern and clean, the page builder and the library of prebuilt layouts make it very easy to setup and build very attractive layouts for all manner of occasions in almost no time at all.
Here are 4 reasons why Divi is one of the best WordPress themes,
- Easy to Handle
- Excellent Technical Support
- Regular Updates are Available and it is Easy to Update Divi Theme
- Google Mobile Friendly
Easy to Handle
Divi includes a powerful page builder along with several pre-configured templates for complex layouts. You can use the templates, configure as desired, or start from scratch to create the page you want to see.
Fantastic Technical Support
The team at Elegant Themes is quick to respond to support issues. Note that while they don’t support “customization” and there are theme changes that go beyond the help they can provide, if you have basic customization changes, they are usually able to help. This is specifically true when it is a matter of a quick CSS change.
Regular Updates are Available and it is Easy to Update Divi Theme
Elegant themes provides a theme updater to allow you to keep Divi up-to-date from the Dashboard. It is a plugin that you may download from the Elegant Themes site and install it as you would any other plugin. You will need to configure the plugin with your Elegant Themes username and API key. You’ll find your API key in your user account. Once configured, when you see that an update is available, you’ll be able to update from within your WordPress installation the same way you do with free themes and plugins.
Remember to create a child theme if you have made changes to the underlying theme files.
Google Mobile Friendly
Out of the box, this theme is very mobile friendly. As you work on the site and before you take it live, we recommend running your site through the Google Mobile Friendly test. This is particularly true if you have added large images or created a larger header than the default. This is something you should do no matter what theme you use. While a theme may be mobile friendly, changes and additions made while building the site can break that friendliness.
In a personal experience, I used the Lucid theme from Elegant Themes for a site. When testing for Google Mobile Friendliness, the main theme tested friendly, but the site did not. I found that I had manually set the header image to be too large. Adjusting this, allowed the site to pass the Mobile Friendly test.
Purchasing the Elegant Themes package gives you the option of using any or all of their themes. Note that some of these are not responsive. If you opt to use other themes from the package, select those that are responsive and run them through the Google Mobile test before use.
